A Day in The Life of Daphne Loo

In chronological order, the ups and downs of my day today…

Down: Edited the bugger George Liu Guozhi’s PhD thesis until 3am.
Up: Jamie sent me the song I love: “Je ne veux pas travailler” by Pink Martini.
Down: Went to sleep hungry and with a fatigued and aching body.
Down: Disturbed sleep – many many nightmares, like short stories or short films.
Down: Woke up feeling grumpy and ill due to lack of sleep.
Down: Actually woke up late.
Down: Realised that I forgot to iron my work clothes the previous night.
Down: Ironing work clothes made me even later for work.
Up: I was greeted by a large cup of piping hot caramel latte on my desk.
Up: I found out that it was from an appreciative colleague for a favour done last week.
Up: My bosses said I looked really smart today in my black blazer/skirt and white shirt.
Up: I finished the Course Notes that I had to compile for tomorrow’s Realtor’s training.
Up: I went for lunch on time.
Up: I had yummy dumpling noodles.
Up: The uncle at the wanton mee shop gave me fried wantons! Free! Yummy!
Down: Met with a minor accident afterwards. Guy spilt coke all over my white shirt.
Down: The coke stains couldn’t be hidden by the blazer.
Up: He offered to buy me a new white shirt at Seiyu!
Up: Found a white shirt that looked wonderful on me. It cost $29.90.
Up: He paid for it (my own damaged shirt cost $21.90 only, and quite worn)
Up: He apologized really sincerely, and I said thank you sincerely too.
Up: I saw a nice blue shirt that I could wear for OB presentation on Friday!
Down: I had to pay for it myself.
Up: It only cost $16.90! Tee hee!
Down: Was bored at office in the afternoon.
Up: I napped for 20 minutes by sitting on the toilet with the lid down.
Down: Dave said I’m too free.
Up: He said he will bring his shih-tzu for me to dog-sit in the afternoons. Ha!
Down: I think he was just kidding.
Up: I completed my part of the OB presentation at work cos I had free time.
Up: Left office at 6pm sharp, and walked through Bugis Village to get to SHRI.
Up: Lots of things to see at Bugis Village – clothes, shoes, belts, people, gifts.
Up: I bought and drank yummy coconut juice in a cup (with real coconut flesh).
Up: I reached SHRI and went to the office to get a refund of $41 from this promo!
Up: I went downstairs to Burger King and got my dinner. Turkey bacon burger!
Down: I remembered that we just had KFC yesterday. Bleh. Too much fast food!
Up: Went back to class and felt really smart cos I understood everything.
Up: During break time, some people asked me if I wanted to study with them.
Down: I think they just want my notes.
Up: But it shows that people think I’m smart! Yay.
Down: When class began, I got an SMS from George Liu Guozhi (the irritating bugger).
Down: He said he wants to terminate my services (for editing his PhD thesis)
Down: He is not paying me for the 40% I’ve done (cos I haven’t submitted anyway)
Down: I wasted a lot of time on his thesis already.
Up: I realised what a shithead he was, and how much I would like to clobber him to death.
Up: His thesis would suck even more without me, cos the original sucks already.
Up: My friends at school and housemate YF and BB and Gerald all want revenge for me!
Up: I realised how much my friends care about me and feel for me.
Down: Back in class, lecturer said he was going to distribute the test papers and results.
Down: Feeling even worse cos it was really just the ‘perfect timing’. More bad news!
Up: I got 24.5 marks out of 30! That’s still more than 80%!
Up: That means I’m still going to be able to get my A for exam!
Up: My mood improved by leaps and bounds. Who cares about assholes like Liu?
Up: Walked home happily from MRT, and no dirty perverts made cat calls at me.
Up: Got to share my good news and rants with YF.
Up: Got to Video Call with BB and Gerald.
Up: Got to make various funny faces while video calling, while they lectured me.
Up: I think I’m still blessed. God still loves me, BB loves me, friends love me. 🙂
Up: I can finally watch Princess Hours, cos no more dumb thesis to edit.


  1. hahaha so cute lah BB.

  2. “Up: His thesis would suck even more without me, cos the original sucks already.”

    hoho.. this is one of the ‘ups’..

  4. BB: Of cos im cute. cos im ur BB mah! 🙂

    xiaoluo: ya if i ever meet him i wil clobber him to death. promise.
